Who is Mazey?

Mazey is one of the very few Rottweiler Assistance Dogs working in the UK. She is a wonderful ambassador for her breed and is the result of a very specialist breeding programme, designed to specifically produce Rottweiler Assistance Dogs.

Mazey was born in August 2017, a very determined bundle of black fluff who almost died when she was only a couple of days old. Had it not been for the dedication of her breeder at Nelly’s Angels Kennels, she would have slipped peacefully away tucked in beside mum. Luckily both Mazey and her breeder had very different ideas! It was obvious she was special from the very beginning: although perhaps not the prettiest of the puppies, she always stood out as the smartest and it was clear she was going to be a natural as an Assistance Dog.

When Nicola, Mazey’s owner visited the litter, it was love at first sight. At ten weeks Mazey left her mother and siblings and made the long journey up to Merseyside where she would meet her two new sisters – Holly and Poppy Bengal. Very quickly Mazey learned the importance of feline personal space. Following time just enjoying being a puppy, Mazey very quickly took to her new role as an Assistance Dog, proving exceptionally quick and easy to train. She also enjoys tracking and has a keen (gastronomic) interest in squirrels.


Mazey’s owner Nicola, is disabled and has been unable to work for some time. She is desperate to find a job which she can do from home when her health permits, so for fun she decided to write a book about the first year in Mazey’s life and all the adventures they both got up to. Nicola hopes to one day be able to support herself and Mazey through her writing.
